Chioma Ifemeludike tackles Destiny Etiko over statement on sexual harassment

Actress Chioma Ifemeludike has tackled her colleague Destiny Etiko for saying that succumbing to sexual harassment is a choice.

Destiny stated this in an interview with Vanguard dated November 20.

Reacting in an Instagram post on Sunday, Ifemeludike accused her Destiny of downplaying the act of sexual harassment of young girls in Nollywood.

Ifemeludike also cautioned her colleague against making general assumptions ‘she knows nothing about’ but rather personalise her opinion as her choice.

“If at anytime in your career journey you accepted sexual harassment as a choice that doesn’t mean you’ll shove it down the throat of society, pls as a public figure we better be careful what we encourage.

“Destiny Etiko, please don’t down play the act of sexually harassing young girls intercepting our struggle with these perverts and exonerating their evil act, you could say it’s personal opinion but in this context I think it’s better to personalise it as “your” choice. I understand how something we need to sound political to remain in the job that pays but let’s be clear that karma is a bitch, she may visit our daughters in future. We shouldn’t get into conversations we ain’t ready to be absolutely truthful about. Let us call a spade a spade so our society can progress and we may not need to beg money on Instagram…Imagine stopping someone on their way to their destiny-nation just because you got their before them or have an upper hand then you try to take advantage of them? That’s evil, ” she wrote.
